Kingston police are looking for two women who may own a dog that attacked a man, sending him to hospital with bite wounds.

Just before 10 p.m. on Thursday, a man and his wife were walking near Friendship Park in the area of Chestnut and Carlisle streets when police say a tan pit bull aggressively came running towards their own dog.

The man then stepped between the dogs and the pit bull attacked him, biting him on the leg and arm.

Two women who appeared to own the pitbull were able to take control of it through a leash and muzzle, Kingston police said.

The women then allegedly left the scene and would not give the dog’s medical information to the couple.
